Fashion weeks have resumed after a bumpy year and a half. New York kicked off a few days ago, and Paris has shows scheduled beginning the last week in September. It will be interesting to see whether the associated “street style” circus we’ve come to associate with Fashion Weeks will be back.
While the outfits photographed outside of the tents and other runway show venues may be entertaining (and even occasionally inspiring), they are almost never indicative of what “civilians” in any given city are actually wearing. But a few Instagram accounts have popped up recently that provide a more realistic view.
Here are three accounts I’ve been following that are based in Paris.
@parisiensinparis is one of my favorites. They describe the outfit in the caption, show a variety of styles, and are respectful of their subjects. (I don’t know if any of these accounts obtain permission, but all take steps to preserve reasonable anonymity of their subjects.) There are a few shots of older people (would love to see more).
@paris.street.style is another account that features a nice variety of subjects and styles
I’ve followed @losangelinainparis for some time now, and find it interesting to see what details an American in Paris notices.
I’ll be watching these accounts to see the transition to fall styles in the next few weeks. Do you follow any “street style” accounts?
